Homepage / Psychological Assessment / Psycho-Educational Assessment

Psycho-Educational assessments are suited for children and adolescents aged 3 – 18. These assessments are useful in identifying your child’s capacities in areas of functioning that relate closely to their school achievement. The psychological assessments can be used to assess for school readiness, identify giftedness, learning differences, facilitate special education services, accommodations in the classroom, as well as for diagnosis (e.g., specific learning disorder, autism, ADHD) in Singapore.


Psychological assessment is not simply administering a test. There is no such thing as an ADHD test or dyslexia test. Redwood Psychology Singapore offers comprehensive psychological assessment and diagnosis that require experience and expertise in triangulating evidence gathered from multiple sources. It involves differentiating and ruling out other potential causes that can result in symptoms that mimic these conditions.


A full learning assessment includes minimally a cognitive assessment (IQ test) and an academic skills assessment. The combination of these tests provides valuable information not revealed by any test on its own. Additional tests or questionnaires may be useful depending on the presenting issues, such as, social, emotional, attentional and behavioural challenges.

Some common requests for Psycho-Educational Assessment includes the following:

  • Diagnostic Assessments of of a Specific Learning Disorder (e.g., Dyslexia), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Social Communication Disorder etc

  • Access Arrangements or Educational Accommodations

  • School Readiness and Special School Placement Assessments

  • IQ or Gifted Assessments
